Oh, I think he knows that his Buick isn't as made as well as a US made Buick. The GM joint venture that produced his Lacrosse at least gives one hope that the GM half of the venture can at least mitigate the poor quality of the Chinese half.
And who knows, he may be driving a Buick out of loyalty to his home country. It's not easy to buy American these days, but it can be done if one looks hard enough.
N.B. I'm hoping to travel to China to see my buddy again next year, as it's his last year on assignment to China. In 2009 he took me to see the Shanghai Auto Show, which was a real hoot.
